Liposuction in Pompano Beach, FL

Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure to remove excess fat deposits from selected areas of the body. A well-toned body is something that most of us desire; however, some fat-prone areas of the body resist attempts to dislodge the localized fat deposits through exercise and proper diet. Some of these areas include the back, buttocks, waist, neck, cheeks, thighs, knees, ankles, stomach, and underneath the chin. The outcome of a liposuction procedure is a more streamlined appearance that boosts the individual’s self-confidence. Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, MD, PA, FACS offers liposuction to residents of Pompano Beach, FL, and other surrounding cities.

Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is carried out under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation for the comfort of the individual. One of the techniques Dr. Phillips might use is to insert a hollow tube known as a cannula into some inconspicuous incisions at the target area. Using a back and forth motion, he will loosen the fat in the area, and then suction it off using a surgical vacuum, or syringe, attached to the other end of the cannula. Residents of Pompano Beach, FL, and other neighboring cities can contact Dr. F. Leigh Phillip at Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Spa for more detailed information on the liposuction procedure.
